Fast, Healthy Smoothies are My Favorite

I love working out in the morning. It is my favorite way to start the day. After my workouts, I am always ready for breakfast. I love blending up an easy smoothie and this Berry Banana Smoothie.  I blend up a refreshing smoothie. Smoothies are a great post workout treat or anytime treat really! This smoothie is great for breakfast or for an easy healthy snack. Our boys love this smoothie too!

How I Make My Smoothies

For this smoothie, I use plain Greek yogurt as the base and throw in whatever fruits we have on hand. When fruit is on sale, I buy extra so I can freeze some for smoothies. I like using frozen fruit because it makes the smoothie thicker. You can use fresh fruit, just throw in some ice cubes to thicken it up.

For this smoothie, I used frozen blueberries, banana, and strawberries. I always add a splash of skim or soy milk to help the blender do it’s work. This breakfast treat blends up in no time.  Sometimes, I make a double batch and keep half of it in the freezer. When I am in a rush, I pull the smoothie out of the freezer and let it defrost while I get ready. I grab my smoothie and a straw on my way out the door and enjoy a healthy breakfast without any fuss!

  1. Sounds fabulous. Love the natural protein in the greek yogurt!! Hope you get plenty of time to play this weekend 🙂

  2. We have something very similar almost every morning but add Oj & a little water instead of the milk. I should try the milk for more calcium

  3. I love smoothies and hardly ever make them. Great reminder to use up some of that frozen fruit in the freezer.

  4. Yummmmylicious! This looks amazing, your photography blows me away! Good idea about popping half into the freezer and then just simply letting it defrost while you get ready. Love it.

    1. Courtney-you are so kind. Thanks for the photography compliment. I have a lot to learn in that department, my photos need some work, but I will keep trying. Thanks for the compliment:)

  5. I love smoothies too. They’re such a great way to eat your fruits.
    I think you need a glass straw. : ) I have some and I’m totally smitten with them.

  6. I’ve been wanting to make smoothies in the mornings but I just don’t seem to get around making them. But this looks so refreshing and healthy and easy. I’m going to definitely be trying out this smoothie recipe.

  7. Hi Maria! Just wanted to let you know that I saw your smoothie recipe and I am making it right now!!! Thanks for the recipe! Cant wait to drink the smoothie! 🙂

  8. I’ve been wanting to try my hand at homemade yogurt—this may have given me the push I need! Thanks for recommending my granola berry smoothie too 🙂

  10. I’m trying to catch up too Maria! Smoothies are great: a meal in a glass. I add whey powder to mine for the extra protein. Cheers!

  11. I looove smoothies! This one looks so thick and refreshing. I wish my son wasn’t napping right now so I could make one of these and go sit in the sun. 🙂

  12. Sounds wonderful! I’ve just started mixing smoothies again after a long stint without them. Used to make them daily and got out of the habit.

  13. I feel like I am ALWAYS trying to catch up on life. Does it ever happen? Sigh.

    I make smoothies just like you do! I love using Silk, berries, and yogurt. If I feel a little indulgent, I’ll use chocolate Silk, a frozen banana, yogurt, and pb!

  14. Oh, that looks so good! I am always looking for new smoothies to add to post-workout routine. I bought some protein powder to throw in and it has made a world of difference in how I feel after working out. My husband makes so much fun of me- I think he thinks I am going to turn into the Hulk or something 🙂 I can’t wait to try this recipe! Thank you so much for your comment today- it made my day!!

    1. Amy-I will have to add some protein powder to my smoothie. I am still searching for a good one. Thanks for stopping by!

  15. I put the same ingredients into a smoothie for my kids to give them a nice protein boost before school. What a great idea to freeze the banana! I’m on it!

  16. I’m for sure in catch mode every hour of everyday! But I love frozen berry smoothies and this looks delicious!

  17. I freeze my yogurt wen I find it on sale and then there is no need to add ice cubes if you don’t want it watered down.

  18. Almond milk would make a good replacement for dairy or soy milk. Tastier and healthier for those of us who are sensitive to soy and dairy. Adding 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of cardamom would really make these flavors pop.

  19. Just made it- delicious! Mine came out a little tart but after I added a little Spelda, iyt was perfect! Thank you!

  20. I made it doubling up on everything and using Fage 2% greek yogurt and pureeing for three minutes. Unfortunately, it came out with too much of a plain yogurt taste. I might suggest usig only 3/4 of the called for yogurt, although it may be less frothy, it would have a stronger fruit taste.

  21. I saw this recipe and thought I’d give this smoothie a try after having some left over blueberries. This smoothie was very delicious and tasted very healthy 🙂 it was refreshing and everyone in my family wanted me to make more haha now I want to try making different kinds of smoothies 😀


  22. Delicious! Since I don’t eat dairy, I’ve made this with a variety of plant-based milks (e.g., almond milk and macadamia milk) and yogurts (e.g., almond milk yogurt and cashew-based yogurt), and every time it turns out perfect!


  23. I use orange juice in place of milk and/or yogurt. Still tastes amazing! We’re lactose intolerant or I’d definitely use yogurt. I haven’t been able to find lactose free yogurt yet. But I love the lactaid milk!
